Electricity from atmospheric pressure

A Moroccan engineer, Cherif MASSAOUDI ZOHEIR invented and patented a power plant powered by atmospheric pressure. This concept had been the subject of numerous researches in the world without ever coming to fruition.

This invention was presented to Moroccan engineers from the Center for the Development of Renewable Energies (Ministry of Energy and Mines of the Kingdom of Morocco). It has received a very favorable response since it allows free generation of electricity while respecting the environment.

The principle is based on the trapping of the incoming air at the atmospheric pressure of the moment, which is found in a situation of overpressure in the plant. This pressure gradient makes it possible to produce an outgoing air flow which generates an electric current.

It is a bit like the principle of air which is trapped in a jar of homemade jam, a jar that is sometimes difficult to open because of the pressure differences between the inside and the outside. Also remember that the winds are generated by differences in atmospheric pressure.

It remains to be seen whether this process can be developed on a large scale.
